Hip-hop star Xzibit has blasted Usher for having a bad sense of humour after he took exception to a joke Xzibit made at his expense at the MTV European Awards last month.

At the awards ceremony Xzibit quipped: "It's been a good year for Usher… but it's also been a good year for (TV show) Queer Eye of the Straight Guy!"

Xzibit was surprised Usher couldn't take the gag, when other celebrities including Franz Ferdinand singer Alex Kapranos took it in better spirit.

He said: "It was fun, but he took it a little personal. He can't take a f**king joke. Franz Ferdinand (Kapranos) didn't mind when I called him a golf tee. And I love Franz Ferdinand, I love his song."
